      • The 1871 Census shows John (aged 31, Lead and Glass Merchant) living at 16 Park Road Villas with Harriet (31), Annie (2) and Henry (2 months). Their servants were Martha Stanley (53) and Emily Anson (16). Emily was from Burton on Trent and probably therefore known to Harriet's family. John's father George and his household lived next door at no.17 Park Road Villas.

        Neighbours included older retired ladies and their households, a music teaching couple and a manufacturing chemist. At no.13 Park Road Villas, an Elizabeth Western (aged 25, a Widow and annuitant) was living with her daughter Florence (2), lodger William Blain and servant Rosetta Mays. Was she related to Ann Western, the sister of John's grandfather William?

    • Notes 
      • According to Hazel Farmiloe: Henry was known as "the Badger"; after the death of his wife, he lived with his housekeeper (?) with whom he had four (?) children who took the name Farmiloe. Hazel and Leslie visited this family in the early 1960s (?) and they were living in very reduced circumstances. They had received nothing from Henry's estate which was inherited by the daughters. It seems Leslie tried to get the daughters to help but they refused.

        Now we have a postscript. Hilary Farmiloe came to the 10th Farmiloe Reunion in 2005. She is a granddaughter of Henry John Farmiloe and supplied information about his descendants.
